VMware Virtual SAN Hits the Market

It provides a new tier of hypervisor-converged storage

VMware Virtual SAN has been released in the market, VMware’s first Software-Defined Storage product.

Built directly into the VMware vSphere kernel, VMware Virtual SAN provides a new tier of hypervisor-converged storage. The software abstracts and pools internal magnetic disks and flash devices from industry-standard x86 servers to produce a high-performance and resilient shared datastore for virtual machines (VMs).

“Today VMware changes the way that storage has been operated to date,” said John Gilmartin, vice president and general manager, SDDC Suite Business Unit, VMware. “VMware Virtual SAN is a radically simple storage solution optimized for virtual environments that brings an application-centric approach to storage management. Customers that know VMware vSphere know VMware Virtual SAN, and can rely on that familiarity to hit the ground running with VMware Virtual SAN.”

VMware Virtual SAN is now generally available. VMware Virtual SAN is priced at $2,495 per processor. VMware Virtual SAN for Desktop is priced at $50 per user.

For a limited time, customers can purchase a bundle of VMware Virtual SAN with VMware vSphere Data Protection Advanced for $2,875 per processor.

For a limited time, VMware vSphere Storage Appliance customers will be able to upgrade to VMware Virtual SAN at 20 percent off the list price.
